Responsible tourism: Northern lights & Arctic Circle railway vacation
Could the Northern Lights possibly cease to exist at some point? Do we really know enough about the negative impact on the environment to know whether this seemingly impossible phenomenon could disappear? For numerous reasons we know how important protecting the North Pole is and losing the option of viewing the Northern Lights would be a travesty.
In this area of the world you’ll be immersing yourself in the environmental beauty but even more so by participating in it through a variety of activities from wildlife spotting cruises, dog/reindeer sledding, snowshoeing, ice-fishing and of course, viewing the spectacular Northern Lights. Our company adheres to strict beliefs in making the world a better place and minimizing our footprint wherever we go. Tour leaders provide travelers with information about local environmental issues in their respective regions, and provide suggestions of how we can best protect the local environment and culture.
Scandinavian culture and community on a whole is known to be simple, kind, outdoorsy and athletic – just think of their world class Olympic performances. On the Northern Lights and Arctic Circle by Rail trip you’ll feel their distinct sense of community, by the way they interact with one another and the way they interact with you. Visit the neighbourhood of Bakklandet in Oslo, eat in cafés along the wharves and perhaps try reindeer sledding, a truly Scandinavian activity. One of the best ways to protect community is by spending money in the community and at the same time, meeting locals!
